Adding Marshmallows in the shape of a Snowman to create Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Snowman is so much fun!

Marshmallows (3 per snowman)

Thin Pretzel Sticks

Candy Corn

Mini Chocolate Chips

Toothpicks

Marshmallow Hot Cocoa Snowman

Lay three marshmallows in a row.

Take the middle marshmallow and run a toothpick through the center leaving most of it exposed.

Take a second toothpick and run it through the center of the opposite side of that same marshmallow – again leaving most of it exposed.

Push marshmallows through the top toothpick and the bottom toothpick to connect the three.

Break a thin pretzel stick in half and press the rough edged sides through each side of the center marshmallow for the snowman’s arms.

Divide the candy corn by cutting the different color sections apart with a knife or scissors.

Take the orange section and rub it through your fingers to shape it into a carrot for the snowman’s nose.

Heat up a small plate in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.

Take three mini chocolate chips, and one-by-one, simply hold them by the point and press them on the hot plate for 1-2 seconds so the bottom gets slightly melted.

Press them down the center of the snowman for his buttons.

Take a tablespoon of the chocolate chips and melt them in a small bowl in the microwave.

Spoon the melted chocolate into one corner of a small sandwich bag.

Snip off a tiny edge of the bag and pipe on the snowman’s eyes and mouth.

Prepare your hot cocoa and gently lay the snowman on top, and enjoy!
